Hendricks Afternoon Tea at Park Plaza Review (Cardiff)

I was invited to try out Park Plaza's Hendricks Gin afternoon tea last week, and as I had just done my theory that morning (and passed!) I was in need of a celebratory drink and a relaxing atmosphere... Which is precisely what Park Plaza provided me with... (Oh and some delicious nibbles)
We started our afternoon with their limited addition Valentines cocktail (a seductive mix of Champagne, Absolute Vodka, Passoa passion fruit liqueur and grapefruit juice - £9.50) in the lounge area of the restaurant; Laguna. We then moved over to beautifully decorated tables to enjoy the Hendricks Gin afternoon tea.
The afternoon tea consisted of finger sandwiches (including smoked salmon, cucumber, dill & cream cheese, egg mayonnaise & cress, and roasted ham), freshly baked scones (with butter, cream and jam of course!) and a selection of cakes and pastries (macaroons, lime jelly with Chantilly cream, strawberry champagne tarts, and chocolate gateau)
My personal favourite was the smoked salmon finger sandwiches and the strawberry champagne tart, but all were complimented by the Hendricks gin cocktail (included with the afternoon tea) which was in cute little tea pots and tea cups that completed the theme!
If finger sandwiches aren't really your thing then you may prefer the Gentleman's Afternoon Tea which includes things like chorizo scotch eggs, sirloin steak, mini venison burgers and chocolate fondant (see full menu here). Or perhaps their special Valentines afternoon tea for a more romantic treat this February (click here for more info)
Thank you Park Plaza for inviting me to try this delicious afternoon tea, it certainly made my day extra special!
